Develop Wisdom Day

Each year Primacy sets aside 4 days to bring special emphasis to our Four Pillars. This last week our community took part in our Develop Wisdom Day, which ranged in activities to stimulate the growth of wisdom in an active young mind.  The day started off with a special Chapel, led by Dr. Adams, and focusing on wisdom from the one true God.  Students then shifted into active learning rotations to solve various group challenges, then the day ended with a Primacy Essentials videos presented by each house.

Volunteer Trip to Nepal

This is my third time going on a volunteer trip like this. Every time I went to a different country, I can’t say which one is my favorite because each one has its own unique culture and people. First time I went to Cambodia, then China and now Nepal.

I learned their clapping games, and we taught them ours. They taught us their traditional dances and we danced with them. we played together during break times and during class we taught them English, music, soccer and some handcrafts. We learned from them and they learned from us.

During these trips I see and learn a lot of things that I won’t see in the city. The kids may not be rich or have all the things that we have. The technology may not be as advanced as us. But they still live happily and so carefree.

In the city everything is so easily accessible, we think everything we get has always been there and always will be. But in a lot of places in the world that is not the case. Unless you really live like them and experience their life, you will not understand how much we have now and how lucky we are to have been born in this part of the world.

What I’m saying may be cliche, but it is truly how I feel about it, or I wouldn’t be coming to these trips over and over again. It’s my third time and I’m definitely going a fourth. It’s not only us helping and teaching them, they also taught me so much.

SA Day

Even though it was a dreary day in Taipei, smiles were shining on faces in Linkou for the first Primacy Student Association Day in this school year. Student leaders planned out an exciting day of group games and team building events. Highlights included Hamsterball Soccer, archery, and a basketball challenge. Each House also performed a song with original lyrics.

Game Club

To re-introduce itself, the Game Club at TPCA hosted a Connect 4 Tournament, with the hope of also spreading gaming culture and encouraging more such inter-house gaming events in future. The tournament kicked off on 4th September with twenty-four people entering (4 from every house). That number has been whittled down to eight who will play in the second round this week. Top positions will win house points.

Spiritual Emphasis Week

“For I know the plans I have for you declares the lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.” – Jeremiah 29:11. 

Primacy is blessed to welcome Stephen Arrington, a former Navy Frogman, Expedition leader for the Jacque Cousteau Society, adventurer, and follower of Jesus Christ as guest speaker for our fall Spiritual Emphasis Week.  Mr. Arrington’s message clearly demonstrated God has a plan for each and every one of us.

Making Music

Making music has great mental, cognitive and physical benefits.  The benefit music provides to students has been recognized for thousands of years.  Aristotle, one of the great teachers from long ago, stated that, “music has a power of forming the character, and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young.”  The faculty and students of Primacy look forward to growing and developing a strong music tradition.

Primacy Intramurals

Intramurals have just started at Primacy and we just finished our second week of basketball. The houses have come out to play and support each other every Wednesday from 5-7pm. Grey and Blue house have already had two wins with the other houses putting up a good fight to compete. I hope we continue with more students next week as our houses continue to play each other in this fun atmosphere.
